Why voting from the bottom of the ticket is important this year

Voting from the bottom of the ticket up is actually really important this year, probably more so than most realize. NH is scheduled to redistrict in 2020.  This link provides some background on how gerrymandering has affected our legislative districts in NH.  http://nhpr.org/post/new-hampshire-shifts-swing-state-why-do-legislative-lines-still-favor-republicans.

Up for grabs are some very important votes in NH in the next few years. For example, Medicaid Expansion, which allowed nearly 50,000 NH residents to keep their healthcare, sunsets in 2018 if not extended or made permanent.  This bill received bi-partisan support from those like Jeb Bradley- "

"Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, one of the bill’s main sponsors, repeatedly defended reauthorization, saying it continues the program without any new taxes, fees or state dollars.  And he also cited the 6,000 people who have accessed substance abuse services through the program.

'So we are going to now turn down 40 percent of the funding in a midst of a heroin crisis? I’m not. Maybe some people are but I’m not,' Bradley told his colleagues before the vote."

Vote this year from the bottom up

This year, I ask you to vote from the bottom up. I ask you, when casting your ballot, to select your local and state candidates before the rest, because we will make the biggest difference for you. Though we pay much more attention to the races for our senators and presidents, it's our state senators and representatives that get more done. At the state level, legislation moves faster, and is more likely to pass than bills in Congress, making your neighbors running for office the most important people on the ticket.

As members of your community, your candidates for local and state offices are the most devoted to solving the issues that impact your home, and the most receptive to your concerns as a constituent. We're out walking door to door, talking to as many residents as possible, because we want to hear from you. We don't have Super PACs, we don't have big contributors, and we don't want them anyway; our support comes from you. We depend on the involvement of our friends and neighbors.

Can we count on your support?

Messmer for Rockingham County District 24, NH House Rep

Letter to the Editor

by Mindi Messmer for NH House

July 11 — To the Editor:

David Borden recently announced his retirement from the N.H. House of Representatives, ending a life-long career of outstanding achievements, valuable contributions, and thoughtful service to the communities of Rye and New Castle. In addition, Dr. Tom Sherman, another outstanding public servant, announced that he will not seek re-election to the House, as he has decided to run for N.H. Senate. Both men have set high standards for our representatives of the future, working with public officials of both parties from all across the state to promote our best interests. At this moment, as they vacate their two respective seats, I thank them for their years of dedicated service to our community.

I first met Representative Sherman a few years ago and recently he was appointed to head the governor’s task force addressing the reports on the Seacoast cancer cluster. He asked me to participate in the investigation given my role in helping to bring this issue to light and my professional experience in the fields of environmental science and health.
